Ángel María
Angel, 66 years old, is a widow with 3 children. Ever since she was 10 years old, she has worked in agriculture. Her father worked in the same industry and, as he didn't have enough money to employee any helpers, he used to take the whole family to work with him as a necessity. Consequently, she learned a great deal and, since she became a widow, she has been carrying out this work alongside her grandchildren in 21,000 square metres of land where they sow corn seeds.
She buys her supplies in a place close to her home, and then has to pay a motor taxi to bring them back to her home. Later, she also has to pay someone to bring them in a cart to the place where they will be used.
She is applying for a loan to buy 2 oxen to transport her farming supplies so that she doesn't have to pay for this cart service. She hopes this will decrease her costs and increase her earnings, her farming resources and improve her own and her family's economic situation.

la señora Angel tiene 66 años de edad, es viuda y tiene tres hijos. Desde que tiene 10 años de edad ella se ha dedicado a la agricultura, ya que su padre se dedicaba a esta actividad y por no tener el suficiente dinero para contratar a empleados, él llevaba a toda la familia a trabajar, ya que era necesario. Por esa razón ella aprendió muy bien y desde que quedo viuda, realza esas actividades junto con sus nietos en 21,000 metros cuadrados de terreno en donde siembra maíz.

Los insumos los compra en un lugar más cercano a su vivienda, luego tiene que pagar una mototaxi, para trasladarlos hacia su casa, después paga a una persona que los lleve en carreta hasta el lugar donde los utilizara.

El préstamo que esta solicitando es para comprar dos bueyes, para trasladar los insumos agrícolas y no tener que pagar este servicio disminuyendo los costos, para mejorar el rendimiento, disponibilidad agrícola y la situación económica de ella y de su familia.
